I have no ability to use salt.  Seriously.  I under salt just about everything I cook.  Thank goodness for Tony!  I constantly bring him things to taste, and the first words out of his mouth is โ€œit needs more salt!โ€  I think Tony thinks Iโ€™ve burned every tastebud in my mouth for all the hot stuff I eat!  This mornings breakfast was no exception!

  • 1 corn tortilla
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • handful baby spinach
  • 1/2 ounce cheese ends
  • fresh sliced jalapenos! ๐Ÿ˜€
  • tablespoon lime salsa (Paul Newmanโ€™s โ€“so good!)
  • fruit salad with raspberries and kiwi

My store had kiwis for 10 for $1!  Youโ€™ll be seeing these a lot this week!

Since I went to the Japanese grocery store yesterday, I picked up some bean sprouts and baby bok choy โ€“ Iโ€™ve had regular bok choy, but never really liked it โ€“ but I LOVED the baby bok choy!  I had leftover crab from my momโ€™s birthday dinner, so lunch was crab stir fry:

  • 1.5 ounce baby bok choy
  • 3 ounces bean sprouts
  • 1.5 ounce red pepper
  • 1.5 ounce zucchini
  • 1 package of Yaki-Soba Noodles (150 calories for the whole package!)
  • 3 ounces cooked king crab
  • 3 ounces broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons House of Tsang Szechuan sauce

This was so filling and good!  But I wished I would have added more sliced fresh jalapeno to this dish! ๐Ÿ˜€

I thought I would get a cup of coffee around 3:00 and decided a Cafe Mocha ala Biz was in order!

  • 1/3 packet of sugar free cocoa mix
  • coffee
  • 2 tablespoons whipped cream
  • sprinkle of Nestle ice cream topping (left over from an office birthday celebration)

Hit the spot!

I picked up some really cheap bone in chicken breasts over the weekend, so decided I would make buttermilk fried chicken.  I seriously under salted the buttermilk marinade (but if it were for me I would have added WAY more cayenne ๐Ÿ˜€ ) and under salted the flour mixture โ€“ but the buttermilk made it extremely juicy and tender.   Hannah hates how raw chicken looks!  Luckily she had pizza after work! ๐Ÿ˜€

My plate: 5 ounce fried chicken breast, 1 cup โ€œskinnyโ€ mashed potatoes (potatoes mixed with chicken broth, no butter) and green beans.

My friend Natalie has a great project starting this week โ€“ Project Feed Me!  Click on this link here to see what itโ€™s all about, or click on the Project Feed Me logo on the right side of my blog.  Basically, you are recommended food items to give to your local food pantry โ€“ only two cans a week!  This week is chili!  The basis is that if you get a lot of people to give a little, everyone wins!  Especially in this economy, you never know if the person who lives next door to you has trouble putting food on the table.  Hope youโ€™ll join me in this effort! ๐Ÿ˜€

Great news โ€“ soon I am going to have a great GIVEAWAY thanks to the generous people at Yoplait for their new Fiber One Yogurt โ€“ 50 people will get a free four pack of this new yogurt, and the rest will get $1.25 coupons!  Stay tuned!

Biggest Loser is on!!  Canโ€™t wait to see what crazy things Tracey is going to do tonight! ๐Ÿ˜€
